Nick's Niche: Part cooling techniques: Why it’s important to "Cool it!"
For the younger readers, the phrase "Cool it" goes back to the 60’s and 70’s, and often was used to settle down an unruly situation. When you were dealing with an agitated person, it was common to shout out "Just cool it, man!" This phrase was replaced later with "Chill out, man!" and eventually to just "Chill!" Of course, those of us who are even older remember that the phrase "Cool" was used to describe our approval of something that was really "Neat," way before the term "Rad" (radical) was even in the lexicon of hip slang. But I digress.
It seems that our concerns about properly curing the powder coating on a part overshadows the cooling of the part, even though it has equal importance in a well-designed powder coating process. So I thought I would provide you with the information necessary to give you a perspective about powder coating system design that you may not have properly considered before.
